Lightbulb Akrapovic Exhaust Systems for BMW 335i F30 Announced (with Sound Files)

Akrapovic Exhaust Systems by PSI




Evolution exhaust systems for the BMW 335i are the result of the perfect integration of expertise, the best technology, and the use of the finest materials. Made of austenitic stainless steel, these systems feature a newly developed layout with two central link pipes replacing the single stock pipe, a new muffler design, and carbon fibre tailpipes. This sporty elegance makes this Bavarian machine stand out from the rest and offers the taste of a more powerful version, accentuated with the additional power gains and weight losses of the Evolution system.

The dual-mode ECU-controlled valve exhaust from Akrapovič offers stock-level sound at normal cruising, and a joyful deep sporty note when driving the 335i more dynamically. The Evolution systems replace the stock exhaust from the catalytic converters back.

Makes the $1200 PPK look cheap when factoring gains, lol!

And those gains are likely not repeatable. Modern BMWs will adapt for increased flow by changing other factors to retain stock characteristics. Those pulls were likely done RIGHT after installation. Notice BMW dos not make any HP claims with exhausts?

This exhaust is stainless steel. All of the details are on the Akrapovic site. The workmanship is top rate and the company has put some effort into improving upon the stock exhaust. It is a full cat back exhaust with some dual piping. Akrapovic does have considerable expertise in exhaust systems - they make the ones for BMW and Audi in DTM and also for the Audi 24 hours Le-Mans cars. They are known as the best motorcycle exhausts made.

You will not get big performance gains from any exhaust system - it really is about the sound quality and having something different that is of very high quality. If you haven't installed the MPPK yet, that would be the first modification to be done then the exhaust.

The Akrapovic exhaust costs what is does.

Haters don't have to buy. But it is an excellent exhaust system.

This system isn't for everyone.

It is stainless steel.

Hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday!

Anyone know the purpose of those mid dual pipes vs the stock single pipe?

Akrapovic is top quality, but it still doesn't justify $446.47 for EACH hp gained. That's not spending smart.

To each their own.

But Akra is well worth the money.

Haha, so true. Come to think of it, the money you spend on modding cars is never considered "smart" in the first place.

Anyway I cant wait to see yours man. You've been patiently waiting for a very long time...

Lol, I just asked my friend today about shooting it. He has been on stupid stuff like engagement trips with his girl and working in paid jobs instead. Bastard!

LOL

To car enthusiasts, it is definitely considered smart. But to others, they see it as a waste of money.

By the way RC, I'll get back to you on my PM's soon. Just thinking them over. :-)
